Consultant. Entrepreneur. Communicator.
Impossibly resilient. Irrationally optimistic. Stubbornly determined. Ambiguity loving. Rule breaker. Working to find my calm, dress like a rock star and make a difference.

I own a creative consulting company. We help big organizations talk to employees and implement high-profile changes—mergers, acquisitions, spin-offs, joint-ventures, stock option exchanges, stock programs, the Affordable Care Act, wellness programs—things that are top-of-mind for employees.

My background is in business, psychology, exec comp, and communication. I have an MBA, I have held a number of consulting positions in different specialties: finance and accounting, HR strategy, executive compensation, communication, and applying technology to enhance the effectiveness of HR.

I am a consultant because I love the business of business. I do my best work on high profile, high stakes, high pressure projects. I find structure in ambiguity. I'm energized by the pace. I'm inspired by complexity. I have fun dancing on the high-wire with a team of people who are smarter than I am.

My superpower is an instinct for arranging work in a way that enables people to succeed by doing what they love. The rule I break most—enforcing "Line 10" from job descriptions (all other duties as required). Creatives create, developers program—sort of. Some people also draw, organize, perform slam poetry, sell, influence. People are stifled when they get trapped in boxes. In an organic structure we release people from artificial boundaries—unleashing hidden talents, creativity and commitment.

Global communication and technology solutions for managing critical corporate changes in dozens of languages.
  • Strategic corporate communications.
  • Equity transactions and talking to employees about equity and other variable pay plans.
  • M&A, JV and spin-off implementation.
  • Intuitive HR software made to order.
  • Cooperating and collaborating across and around traditional boundaries.
Bragging rights
I have the smartest friends.
